There will be a freeze on postings from now until September 2012. There are several reasons for this. These include: a) I am finishing a number of papers related to Islamic management b) I am working on an Action Research project that relate to strategic management and community-based planning. This is kinda of a huge project, with lots of practical implications. It's one opportunity to see what happens in the real world so that I have more stories to share in the classroom. c) The data that I have collected regarding spiritual intelligence (SI) and taqwa is currently being analysed. Some of the findings will be published on my other blog: d) I will be on holiday in France :) See you guys in September

Soft skills workshop

I was honoureabout 40 d to be asked to conduct a Soft Skills Workshop for Politeknik lecturers. This workshop was held in Bangi on the 29th of May 2012. It was organized by Jabatan Pengajian Politeknik from the Ministry of Higher Education. I talked about some of the activities that can be used to teach soft skills. By far the most popular activity was (again) the Distribution Game. This game was originally developed in the 1960s by professors at MIT. Any students who would like to experience this game, let me know

Another soft skills session
